Vienna Summer 2017 - Part 1

Going To Vienna

Friday - July 14th 2017

Claudia and I needed a break from every day's life in Salzburg and so we decided to take a weekend trip to Austria's capital city Vienna. After work we hit the road and arrived at our hotel in the late afternoon. We stayed at the Austria Trend Hotel Doppio and after we checked in, we got a beer at the hotel bar until we took the tram into the inner city. There we had dinner at Loving Hut and later we got vegan ice cream at Bortolotti before returning to our hotel.

Vienna Summer 2017 - Part 2

A Lazy Day In Vienna

Saturday - July 15th 2017

Today we slept in, because we hadn't planned anything special. So after we got up, we headed into the city and started our day with a hot cup of coffee at Starbucks. Later we did some shopping until it was time for a break at a wine bar. there's nothing better than drinking in the morning. For lunch we went to Xu's Cooking, a vegetarian Asian All You Can Eat Buffet. For dessert we got another vegan ice cream at Veganista.

Unfortunately in the afternoon it started to rain and so we spent most of the time at the Hard Rock Cafe. Since the weather didn't get better, we decided to return to the hotel. On our way back we picked up our dinner at Swing Kitchen and ate it in our room while watching TV.

Returning Home

Sunday - July 16th 2017

For today we had a reservation at Bistro Harvest for the brunch. We had already been there a few years ago and the brunch was really great. After we checked out we were on our way to the bistro. Once we got seated we started to dig in, and like last time it was delicious. Around noon we walked back to the hotel, gathered our stuff and drove back to Salzburg.

Hamburg 2017 - Part 1

Flying To Hamburg

Friday - June 2nd 2017

For her 60th birthday my mother in law got a trip to Hamburg. So Friday after work we met at Salzburg Airport an flew to Hamburg. Unfortunately our journey couldn't have started worse, because once we arrived at the airport in Hamburg, someone else took my wife's luggage. After we left our contact information at the luggage bureau, we took the train into the city and checked into our hotel. Like during our last trip to Hamburg, we stayed at the Motel One near the city centre. Check in was quick and easy and later we had dinner at Loving Hut. There we finally got the call from the guy who accidentally took my wife's suitecase was on his way to our hotel to hand it back. Glad to have all our stuff back, we enjoyed a couple of drinks at the hotel bar for the rest of the evening.
